Two people were confirmed killed on Wednesday when men of the Oyo State Park Management System under the leadership of Mr Mukaila Lamidi (also known as Auxiliary) allegedly attacked some shop owners in Iwo Road area of Ibadan, the Oyo state capital city on Wednesday.

The attack on the shop owners was said to be in continuation of an earlier attack and a counter attack between the Auxilliary PMS boys and members of the proscribed National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) on Tuesday.

Two persons were said to have died from the PMS and banned NURTW camps on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the suspected PMS boys stormed the Baba Onilu area of Iwo Road, attacking the shops where phones were being sold.

They were said to have unleashed terror on the phone sellers and shop owners destroying kiosk, show glasses and items.

One member of the NURTW was said to have been killed in the process while many others suffered varying degrees of injuries.

A son of one of the shop owners, simply identified as Ahmed, was said to have been killed in an effort to identify those fomenting trouble in the property.
